Professor Wendy Reid, Director of Education and Quality and Medical Director said:
"Health Education England (HEE) is continuing to support the collective response to this pandemic. We are working to support the wider system in delivering vital services, but also need to fulfil our responsibility to look after our trainees and meet their educational and training needs to become the future specialist workforce.
We are all aware of the tremendous work done by doctors during the pandemic, many of them have had their training disrupted as they provide support to patients suffering from Covid and as routine services have been affected. HEE is working closely with medical royal colleges, the GMC, NHSE &I, hospitals and trainees themselves to ensure that we get training back on track as we come out of the pandemic.”
